Safe Handling of Dry Ice
Your order will be frozen and packed in an insulated shipping carton containing dry ice to ensure that it maintains an ideal temperature while being transported.
Remember: Dry Ice temperature is extremely cold! In fact, at -109.3°F, it is much colder than regular ice.
You should handle dry ice with caution, making sure to wear protective gloves whenever you touch it. An oven mitt or towel will also work. Brief contact with dry ice is harmless, but prolonged contact with the skin will cause injury similar to a burn. Ouch!
Instead of melting like regular ice, dry ice sublimates to carbon dioxide gas, so make sure to allow adequate ventilation. Leave the area immediately if you start to breathe quickly or have any difficulty breathing.Do not leave dry ice unattended around children or pets.
